If you’re anything like me, you won’t be able to resist a joyful, playful and sweet fragrance. Although I absolutely love trying new perfumes – and, since starting at Escentual, I’m definitely more willing to take risks and choose something outside of my old comfort zone – I think I’ll always be naturally drawn to more typically feminine fragrances that tend to centre around fruity or floral notes; it’s almost an addiction.
That’s why I’ve fallen for the charms of the new, free-spirited scent of I Want Choo, a pretty oriental-floral fragrance for women, which I think is set to take the fragrance world by storm. I’ve already raved about this fragrance to the Beauty Team at Escentual, and now it’s time for you to be let in on the secret and find out why I love this fragrance so much. Read on to find out all about this gorgeous new perfume…

The Most Important Thing About This Fragrance Is…
I Want Choo is an ode to the playful spirit and alluring glamour of the Jimmy Choo woman as it opens with a joyful explosion of fruity tones before adding a seductive, sensual tone.
It starts with a sparkling, citrus top note of mandarin juice, which dances beautifully with velvety peach for a fresh, sweet and uplifting fragrance. The heart takes a more addictive, sensual turn as vanilla-like red spider lily blends with heady jasmine sambac before the creamy base notes of gourmand vanilla and warm benzoin – a rich, intense duo – leave a captivating trail.
You Will Love I Want Choo If…
This is a fun, positive fragrance that we think is perfect for a younger perfume fan who wants a pretty scent that still has a touch of sophistication, which is created by the vanillary base. But, it’s perfect for any Jimmy Choo fan – no matter your age! Of course, if you’re like me and you love wordplay, then that’s also reason why you’ll fall for I Want Choo – the name is brilliant!
Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Smells Similar To:
Once the fruity top notes wear off, it has a similar white floral and cosy vanilla feel to L’Interdit Eau de Parfum by Givenchy. Not sure what this fragrance smells like? This perfume also reminds my of a summer’s day, when you’re strolling through a sun-drenched garden filled with beautifully crisp white floral blossom and fresh, juicy fruit that’s ready to be picked. Maybe you’re even enjoying a rich, creamy ice cream laced with flecks of vanilla.
Is Jimmy Choo I Want Choo Unisex?
Here at Escentual, we think you should wear whatever fragrance you like and love, no matter who it’s marketed for. If you tend to opt for sweeter, more fruity-floral fragrances with a sensual vanillary base, then I Want Choo will be right up your street, and it’s certainly a more ‘traditionally’ feminine fragrance due to its fruity, white floral feel.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Jimmy Choo admittedly becomes a more subtle scent as it develops, but this more sensual, delicate and elegant tone is certainly long-lasting; I could still smell the vanilla-infused dry-down in the evening after spritzing it onto the pulse points mid-morning.
What’s The Story?
I Want Choo is all about fun – from the glittery glamorous red box to the fun-loving fragrance. Personally, I’m all for this upbeat, glitzy and care-free approach! Of course, glamourous parties and exciting events are off the cards right for the moment, but I still love how this fragrance celebrates the things a lot of us unashamedly love and look forward to enjoying again; getting dressed up and having a party. I, for one, can’t wait to wear this perfume on a future night out! But in the meantime? Why not wear it for an evening’s Zoom call with friends or apply a few spritzes to add a touch of luxury to your day in the work-from-home office? We deserve it.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
As with all-things-Jimmy Choo, the bottle is an object of desire. From the lockable gold cap with a hammered jewelled effect to the precious JC monogram logo, the bottle is truly stylish and luxurious. The flacon itself has an elegant, feminine silhouette shape that’s underlined by the soft, pretty peach tint of the fragrance within. It’s the place where fragrance meets fashion. But for an added touch of glamour, the fragrance is held within a metallic box with a glistening red glitter finish and adorned with a golden JC monogram that embodies the world of Jimmy Choo.
